Title Stress Analysis of Composite Materials in Wind Turbine Blades Subjected to CFD and FEA
Paper ID X35Kc
Author(s)Eslam Shamso, Abla El-Megharbel
AbstractAbstract: Many researchers have become interested in the field of renewable energy production in recent decades because it has a huge global demand. It is expected to become more common with increased composite production capacity, and by 2040 many countries should be able to operate on the sun, air, and water sources exclusively and cost-effectively. In this paper, Finite Element Modelling (FEM) was developed to simulate the fluid structure interaction (FSI). The study mainly focuses on the modelling of complex and modelled shapes using the software ANSYS. Accordingly, in this study, the FSI model for wind turbine blades is used on a full scale. Aerodynamic loads are calculated using the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model fluently applied in ANSYS, and structural blade responses are determined using the generic company model of implementation in the ANSYS structure. The interface for CFD and FEA is based on a one-way coupling. Furthermore, the model was applied to wind turbine modelling with 1.5 MW blade turbines. Moreover, this paper is concerned specifically with the horizontal wind turbines to predict the maximum value of stress (von Mises), normal stress, and total deformation of the blade.
